2019 Ashes squads

Both sides have made significant roster changes since the 2017/18 Ashes series.

The likes of Dawid Malan, Mark Stoneman and James Vince are nowhere to be found, with Rory Burns, Joe Denly and Jason Roy slated for Ashes debuts in the England top order. Jofra Archer adds some serious spice to a pace attack that also includes gifted allrounder Sam Curran and Warwickshire seamer Olly Stone.

The Aussies have brought in a mixture of fresh faces and old hands. Marcus Harris, Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne are on their maiden Ashes tour, while Michael Neser is a chance make his Test debut. James Pattinson and Matthew Wade are back after a long time off the international stage, but the spotlight will be on the returning trio of Cam Bancroft, Steve Smith and David Warner.

Ashes History: 1882-2019

History of the Ashes cricket series

Cricket’s greatest rivalry. Australia, England, battling it out for that little urn. The Ashes is the cricket series to end all series, pitting the traditional rivals against each other in a test of will and skill.

First played in 1882, the term The Ashes, is derived from the famous obituary, published in British newspaper The Sporting Times, in 1882, which stated English cricket had died and “the body will be cremated and the ashes taken to Australia”. It was the first time Australia had beaten the Poms on their home soil and sent the nation into mourning.

It finally showed that Australia was a viable opponent and led to the rivalry as we know it today.

The Ashes urn, which remains at the MCC Museum, at the storied Lords in England, is believed to contain the ashes of a cricket bail, although historians are only 95 per cent sure that is fact.

The rich history of the Ashes has produced some of the greatest series and single test matches you will ever see.

Played over five Tests since 1998, Australia dominated for many years, winning eight in a row between 1989 and 2003 before England claimed a 2-1 victory, that was followed by a 5-0 whitewash by the Aussies in 2007 – the first time that had occurred.

The Poms won three straight after that, with Australia briefly grabbing them back in 2014 before surrendering them the next year. That trend has flipped, however, with the Aussies asserting their dominance at home while drawing the 2019 series away to retain the Ashes for the first time since 2002-03.



Past Ashes results

While only one series splits Australia (33 wins) and England (32 wins) in the overall tally, the Brits have had the wood over their old enemy in recent years. England has won five of the last eight series and was the last team to win it away from home, although that record is somewhat tarnished by Australia’s big wins in 2014-15 (5-0) and 2017-18 (4-0).
